The Datatag motorcycle identification system has now been in use since April 1992 and there are currently over 500,000 motorcycles protected by Datatag in the UK. The theft rate on these tagged machines is less than a 10th of the rate before Datatag was developed and because of the large number of tagged machines now around, the whole theft picture for bikes has changed for the better.
Based around electronic transponders that provide an electronic 'finger print' to key components, the system also uses 'stealth' chemical etching and includes approximately 1000 Datadots® for minor components.
The best way to prevent your motorcycle being stolen in the first place is to have Datatag fitted when you buy the machine. Datatag's multi-layered electronic identification and anti-theft system enables the Police to identify the true owner of any Datatagged motorcycle, even if the number plate and standard identification numbers have been removed or changed.
Datatag has a fantastic success rate, and criminals are well aware that the CPS has never lost a court case in which Datatag has been used in evidence. As soon as thieves see the Datatag warning decals on your motorcycle they will usually leave it well alone and go looking for an easier target.
